Hurvitz Brain Sciences Summer Student Research Program

Summer studentships typically run from May to September of each year. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a university program and have at least a B+ average in their most recent year of study. Summer student positions through the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program are not posted. Instead, students are responsible for contacting individual scientists directly whose research may be of interest to see if they are willing to supervise a student and to discuss potential projects.

To assist you in finding a willing supervisor, we reached out to all Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program scientists and asked them to confirm whether they will be accepting summer students in 2019. Below is a list of scientists who have expressed interest in employing summer students. Please click on their names to visit their web profiles and learn more about their research.

*Any scientist not listed below should not be contacted about summer student placements. This list will be updated on a regular basis as scientists confirm their interest in employing summer students.

List above last updated: February 21, 2019

Summer studentships are offered on a matching basis (at least 1:1), whereby the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program provides an amount of funding and the supervisor pays the rest for a minimum of 12 weeks. Scientists apply for these awards with a specific student and project in mind.

The application deadline is Friday, March 29, 2019 at 4 p.m. Overseeing the selection process will be a review committee comprised of members from the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program. Awards will be announced early May.

2019 Carson Shipp Summer Studentship

This year, in memory of the late Carson Shipp, we will be offering the 2019 Carson Shipp Summer Studentship. This award will recognize the top-ranked student application focused on traumatic brain injury-related research. Applications will be evaluated within the same pool of Hurvitz Brain Sciences summer studentships; therefore, no separate application is required.
